One cannot leave the cycle of conflict, I think, without being confronted early on with the need for humility.
If one forsakes conflict and values relationship, one is swept like an inner flow towards seeing the necessity to be modest. It’s no longer just a pleasant thought, but humility as a genuine reality lived from a sense of necessity.
I’m not aware that it’s ever shown up in my life before because, a little schooled in karate, I no longer had need to be afraid of people. And hence no longer any need to to act, if not feel, humble.
And given that I’d appointed myself policeman of the world, out to protect the innocent from myriad “Dads,” conflict went with the territory.
I was always working on my skills in conflict. And I loved fighting.
(Boy, do we need to teach parenting in school.)
So here I am, having given up conflict as something I resort to, being brought face-to-face with the need to feel genuinely, not artificially, humble, as a starting point in reclaiming my humanity from its lethargy. (1)
As an aside, I need to add that all of this is happening after June 12, when I consciously re-chose my soul contract to be one of Michael’s co-creative partners at this time. (2) There are undoubtedly lots of others, many of whom are conscious of it and some of whom are not.
I just want to show you what happens after you know and rechoose your soul contract; especially if it involves partnership with a galactic or celestial or any other master for that matter. (3)
The lesson for the day is to learn and practice the divine state of humility. I feel called …
(Shock. Flash of understanding)
Oh my. I’m seeing that, just as blanketing me in lethargy is a way to have me stop going in a certain direction, (4) so now I feel actually attracted to humility. Is someone using the Law of Attraction on me?
The attraction I feel is not ordinary. I’d be the last person in the world to ignore it.
Now certain things become clear to me.
For instance, I don’t think it’s any accident that I’m practically bent over from a hip problem right now (chiropractor is looking after it and I have a new bed, source of the problem). Aside from teaching me what it feels like to be “old,” walking this way, with a cane and in pain, is humbling. An interesting “coincidence,” given the felt attraction to humility.
Another noticing: I don’t think it’s idle talk to say that excessive pride goeth before a fall. Excessive pride seems the opposite of humility.
It blinds us to circumstances. I may become arrogant and not care. I may relax my vigilance and slip up.
Humility is not “in the game.” (5) It puts no screen or filter between itself and love. It defers to love wherever it finds it. Since it has no ill intent, it relies on Divine Providence for protection, not on its own fists.
I know Michael counsels us all to be humble after the Reval, like the tall bamboo:
Archangel Michael: As you assume profile – whether it is because of money or notoriety or political power or financial power, it matters not – it gives you a sense of being elevated. We would encourage you to take the elevator to the basement.
Start there. (6)
Lead, kindly Light. I don’t know what tomorrow will bring. But I’m fully open to it.

(3) And remember: If you wake up one day and find you’ve served a false “Michael,” fear not. The real Michael knows all along you’re serving him. Let me cite the entire conversation with the Divine Mother on the subject. Remember this applies to you as well:
Steve Beckow: I’m operating on the principle – and please correct me if I’m mistaken here – that I serve Archangel Michael, period.
If I were to go to another medium and she was not channeling Archangel Michael and I were to do what was being said, and it turns out to be a colossal error, I’m still serving Archangel Michael.
Am I correct in continuing to say to myself, “The source is not what they say they are but it doesn’t matter. I’m still serving Archangel Michael.”
Divine Mother: You have reached this place of clarity. Now, dearest heart, this is exactly what I am talking about in terms of your divine knowing. And nothing is swaying you from that balanced center of knowing.
So it does not matter whether somebody says they are channeling Hilarion or Mickey Mouse. You know that you are serving my beloved Michael and I would like to suggest to you, Sweet One, not to distract you, but you are also serving me.
Steve: I so much know that, Mother.
DM: You always have. And so, yes, how we have constructed this is that you are employed, you are in joint venture, you are in sacred partnership with Michael, with Me-Ki-Al, and that is the way that you have chosen and that he has chosen and that I have chosen for you to proceed.
Steve: Yes, Mother. Thank you for confirming that.
DM: Let us give you further insight into this. If you were channeling with somebody and they said it was Hilarion, and in fact it was Hilarion, understand on our side the conjoining is so much stronger [with Michael] that Michael would simply funnel through Hilarion what needs to be said.
Steve: Interesting! (“Divine Mother: Does God Recognize Service to a Fallen Teacher?” November 3, 2018, at https://goldenageofgaia.com/2018/11/03/divine-mother-does-god-recognize-service-to-a-fallen-teacher/.)
